08/19/11 Another stop on the mountain lion's journey: Lake George

More details are emerging on the now-famous mountain lion's incredible journey from the Upper Plains to southern Connecticut, where it was ultimately killed by a sport utility vehicle on the Wilbur Cross Parkway in Milford in June.

New York state's Department of Environmental Conservation confirms the wild cougar that trekked 1,500 miles from South Dakota to Connecticut -- having been spotted numerous times in Greenwich earlier this summer -- passed through the upstate New York town of Lake George in 2010, according to the Adirondack Explorer magazine.

The magazine's editor, Phil Brown, reports on the Explorer's blog, Outtakes, and the Albany Times Union's Adirondack Dispatches blog that the mountain lion left hair and prints in the snow.

The blog reports:

"Cindy Eggleston spotted a cougar in her backyard in the town of Lake George on December 16. The next day, her husband, David Eggleston, who is a retired DEC colonel, and Environmental Conservation Officer Louis Gerrain followed the animal's tracks and collected hair samples from what appeared to be a bedding site.

"DNA analysis of the hairs indicated that they came from the same cougar that was killed by a car on a highway in Milford, Connecticut, on June 11. Previously, DNA tests of the Connecticut cougar showed that it was the same cougar that had been tracked in Minnesota and Wisconsin and that it came from a breeding population in the Black Hills of South Dakota."

The mountain lion sighting may be the first in New York state since the late 1800s, according to the state DEC.

According to conservation officials in Connecticut and New York, there were recorded sightings of the same mountain lion in northern Wisconsin in December 2009, Minnesota in May 2010 and, this year, in late May and early June in Greenwich.

The 140-pound mountain lion was nicknamed the St. Croix cougar for the county in Wisconsin where it was first seen. The 1,500-mile journey is more than double the distance of the next longest recorded mountain lion trek in U.S. history, which was 640 miles.

Reports of mountain lion sightings in Greenwich have persisted despite the June death of the cougar, which officials say is the same one spotted here months ago.

Most recently, in early August, reported sightings at The Chieftains gated community in the backcountry prompted the property managers to warn residents to take precautions.

A letter sent to residents of the community that abuts wildlife conservation areas urged them to take care, especially with young children and dogs. The managers also warned residents about walking during dawn or dusk when mountain lions would be particularly active.

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said it was aware of the latest sighting, but there was no evidence supporting the existence of another mountain lion.

The department doesn't believe the state has a native population of mountain lions, but some wildlife experts say there's a chance a small group of mountain lions lives in the state.

Rabbi's Weekly Teaching

Parashat Eikev

Friday, August 19th, 2011

I had the joy of teaching at a recent gathering of the UJA-Federation of Westchester Women's Philanthropy Leadership group, the theme of which was "Family Values." Throughout the past decade, the notion of family values has shaped our national conversation about politics, education, and the system of ethical and moral behaviors that we hope, as parents, to transmit to our children. We readily accept the idea that morally grounded children, who understand the difference between right and wrong, and who fully comprehend the expectations of the society in which they live, are happy children. And thus, I made the point that in secular society if you ask a parent what they most want for their children, the most common answer received is that they would like their children to be happy. But if you ask a Jewish parent what they want most for their child, the answer is somewhat different. It is not that Jewish parents don't want happiness for their children, but what they do want most is for their child to become a mensch -- a Jewish individual who, with every act, value, and ethical behavior, embraces and embodies our full humanity. We believe that with menschlikeit comes happiness, but it begs the question: can one be happy even without being a mensch?

Parents who proudly display the school bumper sticker that "My child is an Honor Student at [name of school]" should undoubtedly be proud of their child's academic achievement. But when we consider success in Jewish terms, when a person succeeds, but does so without a solid grounding in ethics or morals, any and all success -- whether academic, economic, or measured in any other terms that we would label as "fame and fortune" -- is meaningless. Of course, like every group, and every individual, Jews hope to succeed within the material world so as to enable us to take care of ourselves, our loved ones, our Jewish family, and our human family. We also understand that taking care of others is not defined just in economic terms, but framed by our attitudes of love and kindness as pervasive in everything we are, and everything we do. What we think, and how we live, can be defined in terms as essential as our body posture, language, and actions. These make it easy to see how certain people can move through the world, blind to the needs of others, involved only satisfying their own desires and drives. In other words: selfishness shows.

The core value of how we live a life of menschlikeit is by cultivated the practice of Derech Eretz. This term literally means "the way of the land," but we understand this way as how we define our respectful, thoughtful, and loving behavior to all with whom we have contact. Like God, who "created order from chaos," we are responsible for bringing ethical and loving order to any circumstance of potential disorder. The mitzvah of Derech Eretz includes, but is not limited to, our respectful treatment of the elderly, showing honor to our teachers, and being loving children to our parents. Derech Eretz is also about demonstrating kindness to all living things, seeking opportunities at all times to do good, modeling good behavior for others, and integrating charity into our daily lives. Living Derech Eretz elevates us from the mundane to the menschlik. It enables us to be better people, and do what God expects of us.

The golden rule of Judaism, like the golden rule of all the great religions of the world, is to love others as you wish to be loved. This fundamental teaching is understood as a core value of humanity, because all human beings are created equally in God's image. Children are not born with an implicit understanding of this core value, and so parents need to work on creating an environment that nurtures the need to possess constant compassion and concern for others. There are many steps we can take, but as with all demands on our time and attention, we have to schedule our opportunities for implementation. As you look to the days and weeks ahead, with all of the busy tasks that mark the beginning of the school year, consider making time for menschlikeit. Take a moment to schedule time in your calendar for acts of loving kindness: dropping the coins in our tzedakah boxes before going to sleep at night, setting aside food for the hungry and delivering it to a food pantry, visiting a home for the elderly to bring cheer to those who need it, or volunteering to serve food - and compassionate communication - at a soup kitchen. The best of intentions often fall to the wayside, simply because we don't concretize our intentions into a defined time and space.

Family values can take shape in many different ways, but one thing unites them all: parents and grandparents are the best teachers, and the most crucial transmitters of what is important to a family. As those who teach the next generation, we can be the most effective role models when we remember that our children are always watching, always looking to us to learn how to be a mensch. Children notice how we speak to others, when we smile at someone who has done something for us, how we express gratitude to others - and they also notice when we do not make these important human contacts.

If we want our children to be menschlik, we have to work as hard on this as we do to make our kids successful in school, on the athletic fields, on stage and in their daily lives. Just as importantly, we have to remember that we are their role models, and when we see our children acting in a way that we may not like, we should perhaps look to ourselves to see where they are getting their values. When push comes to shove, what do we really want for our children? If we are teaching them to aspire to greatness, then it is up to us to teach them what greatness truly is.

FROM BYRAM ROUNDUP: Was Superintendent of Schools Sidney Freund Good For Byram Children (greenwichroundup.blogspot)

This week, three months after he stunned the town by announcing his resignation, Superintendent of Schools Sidney Freund will spend his last days in Greenwich.

Now that the initial shock has worn off, Board of Education and Byram officials, along with parents and other stakeholders have started to reflected on Freund's two years as Greenwich schools chief.

Freund's tenure may have been brief, but it was filled with challenges, as well as significant achievements. Debates about expanding the International Baccalaureate program into Western Middle School in Byram.

People in the Byram community have long called for cuts to the number of administrators and to this goal not much was accomplished by Freund. Many Byram parents and teachers odds with the superintendent, but they seem to take a somewhat balanced look at Freund's impact on Greenwich overall.

The feeling Generally is that in certain respects he left the district better than he found it. But, in many other respects, however, he left the district much worse than he found it.

The school district's credibility with the public was compromised by the manner in which the superintendent undertook International Baccalaureate program, and his unprofessional handling of issues surrounding his abrupt voluntary resignation.

Greenwich Board of Education member Marianna Ponns Cohen has repeatedly accused Freund of committing the town financially to the IB program without the authorization of the full school board.

When explaining his decision to resign, Freund cited his increasingly tense relationship with Ponns Cohen and school board member Peter Sherr, who both voted against starting negotiations on a two-year contract extension for the superintendent a few days before he made his announcement.

Many Byram parents answer to the question about Freund's tenure lies with Byram's scores on state exams, which have fallen in many areas. Many parents think that speaks for itself......

Moody's Threatens To Downgrade Greenwich's Tripple-A Credit Ratting

Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei And The BET Finally Start To Put Long Over Do Financial Controls In Place

Greenwich could be in danger of losing its AAA bond rating from Moody's, which recently put the town on a negative outlook list Moody's, a member of the big three credit ratings agencies, put on notice Aug. 4 that their top borrowing status could be at risk.

Greenwich has a negative outlook, which basically means there's a risk of downgrade over the next year or two. Greenwich been consistently rated triple-A in recent decades.

If Greenwich was downgraded, the immediate impact would be higher interest costs.

Bonding had been commonplace up until 1933, when the town, saddled with debt, decided to go in a new direction of pay-as-you-go.

For decades, Greenwich never went to the bond market with the exception of sewer debt.

Greenwich turned to short-term borrowing to augment tax revenues to pay for capital items in recent years, resorting to long-term bonds for sewer improvements and other projects in which the town will get a guaranteed return on its investment through fees.

The town is currently carrying $129 million in debt, a total that excludes $17 million in potential borrowing for a new music instruction space and auditorium at Greenwich High School and $15.6 million in potential borrowing for other projects......

08/19/11 Report: Ruth Madoff To Divorce Bernie In Effort To Reconcile Contact With Her Children

Photo: Ruth Madoff In Happier Times

Ruth Madoff will divorce her husband, Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff, in order to reconcile with her son, a Madoff biographer said.

Ruth Madoff, 70, reportedly has not gone to prison to visit her husband of 52 years since their son Mark, 46, committed suicide last December, according to Diana Henriques, author of “Bernie Madoff: The Wizard of Lies.”

Doesn't Anyone feel sorry for poor Bernie sitting in that jail down south?

BUT RUTH IS STILL IN THE DOG HOUSE .....

Another son, Andrew, reportedly has not had contact with his mother since the suicide, and turned her away from a memorial service for Mark at his home in Greenwich, Conn., the New York Post reported.

The brothers, who turned in their father, broke off contact with their mother after she chose to support her husband during legal proceedings. Henriques told CBS’ “The Early Show” that “there are good signs of reconciliation” between mother and son.

Bernard Madoff bilked investors out of approximately $20 billion and is serving a 150-year sentence at the federal prison in Butner, N.C.

08/19/11 PRESS RELEASE: ONS Foundation Receives $300,000 Donation To Support Research Laboratory

The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education Inc, a nonprofit organization in alliance with Greenwich Hospital

The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education has announced the receipt of a $300,000 donation from Milton Sender of Stamford, CT and Middleburg, VA. The funds will go towards the operations support for the Foundation's new laboratory for arthroscopy, surgical skills and biomechanics research.

Milton Sender is a co-founder and former-CEO of Daymon Worldwide, a marketing company of private-brand products. He became interested in the Foundation after being treated by physicians at ONS who are also involved with the ONS Foundation. "I met (Drs.) Mark Camel and Seth Miller when I needed surgery on my neck and shoulder after a fall from a horse. I was very impressed with the competence of the doctors at ONS. I heard about the Foundation and I wanted to do something to help people in my own community who have helped me so much. The Foundation was a natural choice. I believe that if you are good at what you do, you shouldn't have a ceiling over your head. I hope my gift will help stimulate others to support the Foundation, so it may continue to advance research on treatments for bone and joint conditions into the future." Mr. Sender added that his own experiences with injuries and treatments have made him acutely aware of the potential for orthopedics and neurosurgery to have a major impact on peoples' lives.

The $300,000, which will be distributed over five years, will go towards operating the ONS Foundation Laboratory for arthroscopy, surgical skills and biomechanics that is under development and expected to open in January 2012. Research projects currently underway using outside labs include a comparison study of open and minimally invasive spinal fusion procedures, a comparative outcome and cost analysis for treatment of unstable odontoid fractures in the elderly, an evaluation of intra-articular rotator cuff repair and an examination of the pathenogensis of rotator cuff tears.

"It is an honor to have Milton's support," said Vicki Leeds Tananbaum, Vice President to the Board of Directors of the Foundation. "To be recognized by someone of Milton's stature and reputation is a real complement to the Foundation. We look forward to working closely with him."

The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education Inc. was established in 2008 by a group of orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, concerned individuals and community leaders who realized the importance of improving patient results through research and education. Foundation research projects aim to improve patient care by furthering the development of minimally invasive techniques and other treatments for injuries and conditions of the shoulder, elbow and knee, and spinal disorders. The office is located at 6 Greenwich Office Park, 10 Valley Drive, Greenwich, CT.

For further information about the ONS Foundation, visit www.ons-foundation.org or call (203) 869-3131.
